Radiography is a key component in the investigation and diagnosis of many equine conditions. Whether you are just starting to X-ray horses, ponies and donkeys, and want to understand the fundamental principles, or are more experienced and want to advance your radiography and radiology skills, IMV imaging has many resources to help.
With a wide range of radiography equipment available, it is important to understand the principles that underpin the systems and controls. From X-ray physics to the differences in radiography system types, then how to choose a system, we have a range of articles, posters and videos to guide you.
Moving from CR to DR
If you are considering buying an equine radiography system, then Direct Digital Radiography (DR) offers many advantages for equine use. Similarly, if you are looking to upgrade from computed radiography (CR) to DR, IMV imaging can discuss the advantages of the systems and talk you through what will work for you.
X-ray Generators and Accessories
Along with the processor, consider your X-ray generator, plates, and exposure charts (for both CR and DR systems). The equipment, safety considerations and accessories you use may vary with where the X-rays are being performed, and can be very different in ambulatory practice compared to in a hospital environment.
So, if you are preparing to start taking equine radiographs, IMV imaging can provide all the information you need to get up and running.
